3.0 out of 5 stars simple light opera July 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am listening to this music on the Amazon Cloud Player. I had a vocal score to determine how many grace notes were being added to the composition by Jean-Jacques Rousseau. I had played the basic melodies on the piano, so hearing how orchestrated the music is in performance was mainly what I noticed the first time I listened to it. Many years ago I listened to this kind of music, but I can't think of anything to compare it to because none of it struck me as being distinct. The opera Le Devin Du Village was first performed in 1752 when Rousseau was 41 and too set in his ways to think he could become good buddies with King Louis XV as the king was singing these songs. On the French language used in this opera, Rousseau wrote:

there is neither time nor melody
in French music because the language
is not capable of either:
French song is a continuous bark,
its harmony crude and suggestive
of the work of a student.
French airs are not airs at all,
nor French recitatives worth anything. (Music in History/The Evolution of an Art (1940, 1949) by Howard McKinney and W. R. Anderson, n. 2, pp. 396-397).
